HeroClix Scenario: The Hunger Games
So I watched The Hunger Games. I thought it was a great flick, regardless of what the intra-ma-net machines have been saying.
I know I’ve enjoyed a movie when I want the characters from said flick in HeroClix form and unfortunately, there’s no real plans for actual Hunger Games HeroClix from Wizkids/NECA at this stage.
So, I did the next best thing.
I’ve tried to develop a scenario that captures the theme and excitement of The Hunger Games that you can play with some of your existing HeroClix collection.
Scenario – THE HUNGER GAMES
Background: In a not-too-distant future, society has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine and war. The world as we know it has been divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. The televised games are broadcast throughout the country. The participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch.
The Hunger Games scenario represents one such encounter. Kids and teens meet in the arena where they’ll fight to the death, resulting in only one, sole survivor.
Objective: The Hunger Games has no specific objective other than one of your characters being the last man (or woman) standing.
Players: Four or more players.
Team Size: Before playing, players build a team of up to 100 points and must contain only two HeroClix pieces per team. Feat Cards may be used.
Special Rules: Both HeroClix pieces on your team must have either the Kid or Teen keyword.
Time Limit: Unlimited (until everyone is wiped out on the battlefield, bar one character).
Map: Players roll and the winner decides which map to use.
Now these rules aren’t concrete by any measure. You can change and tweak the scenario to suit your playing group or your specific collection (for example, instead of Kid and Teen keywords maybe you can use different location keywords instead: Gotham City, Atlantis and Paragon City are a few examples). So feel free to experiment and change things to make HeroClix: The Hunger Games better for your situation and circumstances.
So there you go. If you find you have a free afternoon, a few friends and a couple handfuls of Clix, try out HeroClix: The Hunger Games and may the odds be in your favor.
